Virat Kohli has grown as a cricketer really fast. The batsman is the captain of the Indian team for a while now. He is hoping to lead the Indian team to win the World Cup trophy for the third time after their last win in 2011.
The Indian team kicked start the tournament with a win against South Africa and their recent win over Pakistan. In the match against South Africa, Jasprit Bumrah and Rohit Sharma were in the limelight. Bumrah took two wickets, while Sharma scored a century in the brilliant opening spell. Even though Kohli didn’t score much in the opening match, he led the team to victory. Kohli said,
It’s good to get off the mark straight away in the tournament. It was a complete win. The run-rate wasn’t great but it was challenging out there.
How much is the Indian Captain worth?
In 2018, Kohli was featured on the Forbes list among the highest-paid athletes and was the only Indian in this category. He reportedly earned around £15.5 million during the year.
With that income, it is estimated that Kohli’s net worth has now increased to £18.5m. Kohli’s endorsement deals include brands like Puma, Audi India, and Google Duo. The RCB captain is an admirer of luxury cars, and Audi partnership is likely to be the result of his personal interest.
The brand is believed to have given a Q7 car to the cricketer on the brand’s 10th anniversary in 2017. Kohli also owns a Range Rover, Lamborghini, and BMW X6 apart from Audi R8 V10, W12 Quattro, Audi Q7 and Audi A8L. He is also a partner in Nueva, which is a restaurant offering South American cuisines in New Delhi.
